We are pleased to announce that Holy Innocents’ has joined the #PayTheCheckForward campaign. This national campaign encourages individuals to donate a portion of their $600 stimulus check to a local charity or non-profit. Donors then support the national campaign by posting a photo (and some personal thoughts) about their donation on their Facebook or Instagram accounts, using the hashtag #PayTheCheckForward. Special thanks to Howard Clark and Don Hackney for recommending this program to us.

If you are in a position to do so, we ask that you prayerfully consider donating some portion of your stimulus check (or otherwise make a donation) to support Holy Innocents' during this campaign. We are working to pay down our $2.4 million mortgage – so any donations will help lower our debt payments. You can donate by clicking HERE

And, if you are personally involved with another charity or non-profit, please suggest that they conduct their fundraising campaign by asking their donors and contacts to #PayTheCheckForward. If just 1% of stimulus check recipients donated a part of their checks, this movement could raise as much as $1,000,000,000 for organizations that need it the most, while helping stimulate our local economy!

In these difficult times, we want you to know that the mission and ministry of Holy Innocents' remain strong and fully dedicated to the spiritual and pastoral needs of our parishioners. Now more than ever, your continued support will allow us to care for our church community and help lower the $100,000 annual interest and principal payments.

Thank you for your consideration,
The Rector and Wardens of Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church
